I searched the internet over and over again to find a tutorial for a paper barn star and couldn't find one, so I decided to figure it out on my own and make one. I can't be the only one, so here's my photo tutorial of how to make one for yourself! There may be easier ways to do this, but this is what I came up with and seems to work just fine. To make your paper barn star you will need: 5 square pieces of paper in the size and style of your choice: cardstock, patterned paper, vintage paper will all work, but thicker paper works best. For this example I used double sided patterned paper from Crate Paper and cut it to 3 inches x 3 inches. Adhesive. I prefer permanent tape adhesive but a glue stick would work just fine. ScissorsA bone folder (not necessary but extremely helpful)A water based sealer such as mod podge to protect the end product and give it strength.
I'm on the lookout for some fun firewood storage ideas to implement in the backyard by the firepit. My search did not disappoint. Budget wise, I'll probably just purchase a large potting container from Costco and re purpose it with firewood. Though, these ideas let my imagination roam. This entire site was rocking for ideas. The designers created an entire furniture line around the concept of firewood storage. Cool. Where can I get a wooden milk crate? Cuz I wants one. Lots of log baskets and firewood racks to be found here. I really loved the look of this vintage copper bucket. Um...these rock. Nothing like some industrial zinc firewood holders to complete the look. I adore neatly cut wood piled perfectly at the entrance of a house. Reminds me of life at a ski hill. Hey, if you have any links of other great ideas - please pass them along!
